Appointment reminders are for prompting the practice to schedule future or follow-up appointments for its patients. Partners can create, update, retrieve, and delete appointment reminders.
Retrieving and Creating Appointment Reminders
Partners can retrieve all appointment reminders from specific departments within a practice, or a single patient.
Only one appointment reminder can be created per call in athenaNet. Partners are required to provide an approximate date to schedule the appointment and must include the department ID, and the patient’s ID. Additional fields are also available to provide more information about the reminder.
All appointment reminders that are created successfully will generate an API response that includes an appointmentreminderid along with the value “Success: True.”
Before creating new appointment reminders for patients, Partners should use the GET call to avoid duplicate appointment reminders.
Updating and Deleting Appointment Reminders
Partners are only able to update and delete appointment reminders that they have created via API. Partners cannot update/delete reminders that are created in athenaNet by other users or vendors. In order to edit/delete a document, Partners will need the appointmentreminderid of the document they want to edit/delete.
All appointment reminders that are updated/deleted successfully will generate an API response that includes an appointmentreminderid along with the value “Success: True.”
